Radiopharmaceuticals and Tracers

GE Healthcare announced that it has created a solution to make positron emission tomography (PET) tracers for diagnostic imaging more readily available. At the Society for Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI), GE launched new products fo...

The past year saw the release of several new, innovative technologies to improve nuclear imaging in both positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). 

PET vs. SPECT, nuclear imaging advances

Just when positron emission tomography (PET) appears to be eclipsing single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) for cardiac imaging, new advances make SPECT more attractive. Both modalities also have suffered setbacks with radiopharmaceuti...
